Fit Ball  – I love this 9′ squeeze ball – It’s great for strengthening all things CORE! It is the perfect size to support your back while working your abs, tightening your inner thighs, or your hamstrings. The best part about this squeezy little ball is you can let the air out of it and refill it easily, so it’s perfect for travel!


Yoga Mat  Stretching feels so good and keeps you energized through out the day. That’s why a yoga mat is the perfect staple to keep at home, car, or office. Functional, practical Mindful Yoga and well…having one makes you look like a zen master! Want to really make your yoga mat gift special? Add a cute monogram like I did for Caitlin last year here!

Resistance Bands The great thing about resistance bands is that they meet so many fitness needs. Perfect for strengthening and toning, they are easy to use and don’t take up much space. The perfect gift that will stretch everything but your budget !

Fitness Class Certificate   You know I love Jen. I love her Pilate and Barre classes. I love sharing her knowledge and great classes with others…After all its LOVE YOUR CORE PILATESMake a plan to take a friend who has been wanting to get into exercise to your favorite class.

Gifts for your Favorite Foodie:

Crock Pot  Ok, so it’s not sexy or glamorous but it is awesome to come home and have dinner ready to go! My favorite one pot meal is a good hearty soup.

Share a few recipes with your gift recipient to get them started crocking!
